This sucks. Sorry I have not put the names to these photos, they came in so fast and I am in an area with spotty reception right now.
I really hope our community can come together and help these folks out. Hard to imagine running out of your home with just the clothes on your back. When I get info to share about helping I will let everyone know.

Big shout out to the young teens who ran down the hallways pounding on doors to wake people up. Also thank you Bill D. (@Sackvilleinside) for being there and tweeting what was going on while the “real” media was in bed!
So happy everyone got out. Yikes!
